The options for speakers smart continue flooding the market, especially as we approach the shopping season the end of the year. Now, in the framework of your event Mate 20 that was held in China, Huawei revealed a new loudspeaker that works with artificial intelligence. But it seems that the chinese company will lack creativity, because after a previous speaker similar to the Google Home, now the new design is very similar to the HomePod Apple.
According to a report in Engadget, the horn of Huawei has a cover of fabric color dark grey, and buttons for mute, call and volume control at the top of its cylindrical body. This is the second speaker smartphone from Huawei. As we had reported, last month the company presented its horn AI enabled for Alexa under the name of Cube. However, the choice of that name turned out to be an enigma, as the previous speaker looks like a Google Home elongated and does not have the form of a cube.
However, unlike the AI Cube, the new speaker AI of Huawei (which is what their name in chinese which roughly translates to the English) uses its own voice assistant Xiaoyi. It is also much cheaper than the Apple HomePod for $350. According to reports, it will cost only ¥399¥, around $60 dollars. There are still no plans for a global launch, so we’ll have to wait to see if Huawei will add voice support in English or Spanish.
According to a report in The Verge, the horn AI of Huawei uses the audio technology of Danish company speaker Dynaudio, and it can also be combined with the algorithm “Histen” for Huawei, that is the name of the company eq effects of music that can be found in the phones of Huawei. The speaker has 10W high-fidelity 10-watt, six microphones, and the recognition of voice print, to distinguish the voices of different members of the family, and is presented in two colors, gray and white.
